Eminem's 2nd LP, where the sh*it REALLY hits the fan. What's still striking and genuinely exciting about this record, which is hardly worth even describing considering the mountains of opinions, protests, and moral grand standing, is Em's willingness to keep instigating the people he offended. Throughout the years it seems that all of the hugely controversial pop artists backed off a little or explained themselves when things got out of hand. Rappers like Ice T and 2 Live Crew, and rockers like Marilyn Manson all made appearances on talk shows, to at least defend their artistic expression when they were accused by conservatives and/
or liberal thought police. Eminem saw what was happening, and reacted by sinking bigger bait, which of course hooked meatier targets – the most amusing of which came from overrated VH1 celebrity gadfly/
commercial jingle composer Moby, and Lynn freakin' Cheney of all people. Very impressive, Slim. Oh yeah, he raps, too. Includes the tracks "Kill You", the mega singles "The Real Slim Shady" & "Stan", "Remember Me", "I'm Back", "Drug Ballad", and more.
